Brown Sanders leaves UB for NCAA

After three years at the University at Buffalo, Anucha Brown Sanders is moving on to a position with the NCAA. This week, Brown Sanders was named the NCAA's vice president of women's basketball championships. 


In her new role, she will be the liason between the NCAA and the Women's Basketball Coaches Association and the Division I, Division II and Division III women's basketball committees. She will help with "strategic oversight" of the process to determine championship locations.

Brown Sanders was the senior associate athletic director and senior women's administrator at UB. She was the adminstrative supervisor for men's and women's basketball, volleyball, softball, swimming, diving and rowing. She also worked to improve Buffalo's marketing, corporate partnerships and community relations.

"It’s an exciting time for the game of women’s college basketball and I am thrilled and honored to have been selected for the challenge of leading the championships into the next phase of growth and development,” Browne Sanders in the release from the NCAA. “Basketball has provided me with numerous opportunities in my life and I hope to take that experience and build upon it as we enhance the student-athlete experience at all championship levels.”
